Two California doctors who made headlines for downplaying the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and calling for an end to "social dissociation" regulations have been called out by medical experts for spreading misinformation. In a rare statement today, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) said they strongly condemn a recent statement by two of their colleagues at the US Department of Health and Human Services in Washington. D.C. The American Association of Physicians for the Advancement of Science (APS), the nation's largest medical association, said in a rare statement today that it strongly condemns a recent statement by one of its members, Dr. William J. O'Neill, of Bakersfield.
The doctor, who is not an epidemiologist but owns and operates a Bakersfield-area emergency care center, held a news conference last week in which he and two of his colleagues extrapolated their findings and projected the number of patients at their clinic and their patients across the state of California. He said that of the 5,213 patients tested at his clinic, 4,214 had positive results, meaning that about 6.5% had COVID-19. He estimated that 4.7 million Californians were infected.

The claim is at odds with recommended guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and California Department of Health (CDH) on the dangers of COVID-19. It also contradicts the recommendations of the National Institutes of Health, the American Academy of Pediatrics and other health care providers, and the recommendations of the state Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Board (HIPB), which recommends guidelines to physicians and patients in California, Oregon, Washington and Washington, D.C., officials from the California Health Services Agency (CAHSA) said in a news release. And it runs counter to the recommendation of the United States Health and Human Services Agency (CIPA).

Dr. Park's parole includes many other issues that the public in Bakersfield should be aware of, Consumer Watchdog said.

At a time when Americans yearn for their return, doctors are finding a receptive, even public audience. At the same time, they find an even more receptive audience, especially in the US, when they crave the comfort of their own home and the security of a safe, secure, and reliable health care system for their patients and family members. And, at a time when Americans do not long for or return to a home - a friendly, safe, and secure health-care system - doctors find receptive, even prominent populations, such as those in Bakersfield and other cities.
